starting earlier. at the bay bridge, no exception. it's already stacked up to the maze and it's only 6:03. they turned the metering lights on at 5:44. we also had a fender-bender right before they switched the metering lights on so that didn't help the commute. anyway, it's busy trying to get into san francisco. now, i didn't have a chance to update this map. within the last couple of minutes they reopened one lane so one lane is now open northbound highway 17 in the santa cruz mountains approaching laurel road. but a member of the "kcbs phone force" called and said up to 12 cars may be involved in the accident. very slow, delays 30 minutes or more backed up from at least vine hill and it's slow past the accident scene to the summit. that's your latest "kcbs" drive to work. for your latest forecast, here's roberta. it's june gloom in september. good morning, rise and shine heading out the door for work or school, this is what you can expect. we have overcast skies. boy, that marine layer right now a good 2,000 feet deep. we have a little bit of drizzle as a result along the coast. temperature-wise into the mid-

horrific act of violence. >> reporter: the terror group says it killed sotloff in response to continued u.s. airstrikes against isis targets in iraq. >> americans are repulsed by their barbarism. we will not be intimidated. their horrific acts only unite us as a country and stiffen our resolve to take the fight against these terrorists. >> reporter: in the video isis also threatened to kill another hostage a british citizen identified as david haynes. at a nato summit beginning tomorrow in wales, president obama will try to develop an international coalition to help defeat the terror group. >> our objective is clear to degrade and destroy isil so it's no longer a threat not just to iraq but also the region and the united states. >> reporter: ahead of president obama's trip to europe he signed off on a request to send 350 additional u.s. troops to baghdad to secure u.s. personnel and facilities as iraq wages war against isis.

as it produces a large plum steam and gas. since friday's eruption... a serif seismic activity near an erupting volcano in iceland is calming down although it continues to spew lava and fire, steam and gas. since friday a series of earthquakes created breaks in a glacier. things might get worse. lava could spread south down to the glaciers melting a huge quantity of ice and resulting in perhaps some flooding, as well. some developing news. all but seven teens have been taken back to a nashville detention center after a mass breakout. more than 30 teens escapes from the center on monday. they kicked out metal panels under the windows and got out through a weak spot in the perimeter fence. the facility was the site of another breakout attempt two years ago. a third american health worker has ebola while working in liberia. he is reportedly doing okay. he was not treating ebola patients when he began to show
symptoms. he works for the same missionary group as the other two americans who got ebola and they have since recovered. the director of the cdc warns the ebola epidemic is spreading faster than doctors can treat it. apple says there are no holes in the icloud calling the recent hollywood hacking scandal a targeted attack where they attacked certain celebrity accounts. those star's private photos showed up online. apple says the icloud security was never breached. even if the hackers are caught, prosecuting them may be difficult in part because of complicated digital trails that obscure who is responsible. furthermore, just 14 states including california have an active law dealing with unwanted distribution of private images. >> the problem there is a patchwork of 50 different laws and individuals both the person's photos were taken and the person who takes the photos are in different states often
and it's unclear what law applies. >> prosecutors are beginning to use a federal law to go after this type of crime. the computer fraud and abuse act is an antihacking law. liz has forecast. >> trying to get out of the santa cruz mountains, we have been taking a lot of calls from members of the "kcbs phone force." and the latest count, 12 cars involved in this accident all approaching laurel road. there may have been a couple of accidents but definitely the bigger one was right there approaching laurel and maybe another one in the backup. they have issued a traffic alert now. so the latest on the delays we are seeing slow grounds from granite creek to scotts valley so this is the hot spot to avoid. they did get the slow lane open so traffic doesn't have to use the shoulder any longer but delays are 30 minutes or longer trying to get into los gatos. here's a live look outside. westbound 580, you can see it's

area. that is out of the west- southwest. meanwhile, upstream in fairfield that wind is out of the west-southwest at 15 miles per hour. otherwise, the winds will blow later this afternoon up to 20. here's what you need to know out the door on this wednesday. that marine layer continues to deepen. we do have a stagnant weather pattern today all the way through about next thursday. so what you experience today is pretty much what you get for the next ful seven days with near normal temperatures each and every day. futurecast illustrates this morning everybody pretty much is in the clouds. then those clouds begin to dial back to the immediate seashore by lunch where they hang tight near the golden gate bridge and all the way through the north bay. those clouds filter back onshore tonight producing some condensation, some drizzle, along the beaches. this is an area of low pressure. this is what it's causing. that enhancements of the marine layer is projected to move east. but the damage is done. we have a deep marine layer that typically we experience in
the month of june and july. temperatures 60s and 70s along the beaches and bay. otherwise, mid-80s inland. the extent the forecast calls for very little change every day. >> thank you. time now 6:19. coming up, he was cut by the st. louis rams this week but it appears michael sam has found a new home. we'll tell you where straight ahead. >> and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, what is the quickest way to clear a room? have manny pacquiao sing you a song. and the giants offense, man, it's catching on. coming up. ,,

in the upper 50s. here's what we need to know on this "hump day"! clouds stick around near the water just about all day with very little clearing. lots of sunshine away from the coast. today's numbers in the 60s at the beaches, 68 degrees in san francisco. that's typically what we have this time of the year. 70 in oakland. hayward today the low 70s. 80 in san jose. couple of degrees warmer in santa clara. 90 inland in brentwood, tracy, oakley and mountain house. 91 degrees tomorrow outside number. but basically what you're looking at is a stagnant weather pattern each day through tuesday. elizabeth, not so stagnant on the roads. >> i know. suddenly we got some bad problems right now in the santa cruz mountains and unfortunately these delays are getting worse instead of bedder. so we have the official update from chp a couple of minutes ago. there were three separate
accidents near the laurel curve. so traffic alert is in effect in the northbound lanes of highway 17. blocking lanes in a zigzag pattern. when you come across the first accident it looks like the left lane is blocked and farther north the right lane is blocked. so it's causing a huge backup right now jammed from granite creek in scotts valley. but look at the speeds 5 miles per hour. this is the a slow crawl right now from the santa cruz mountains. bay bridge toll plaza backed up beyond the maze. back to you. >> thank you. pg&e faces the biggest fine of its kind in state history. judges with the state public utilities commission are proposing a $1.4 billion penalty for the san bruno pipeline explosion. they ruled pg&e committed nearly 4,000 violations in the years leading up to the 2010 blast that killed 8 people and
